avahi: unset FILES_avahi to avoid packaging files there
The main avahi recipe doesn't package anything into ${PN}. If a library is enabled but not put into a separate package it ends up in ${PN} and all the packages are renamed using it's soname - ie libdns-sd-daemon. Avoid this by clearing FILES_avahi so extra files are unpackaged instead of creating a new package. Also actually remove /var as the comments claim so the avahi package is truly empty.
